    A $2.85 Million California Ranch That Once Belonged to Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher Hits the Market

    A California ranch where late screen legends Debbie Reynolds and her daughter Carrie Fisher once lived has just hit the market—and could come with a lot of celebrity memorabilia.

    The 44-acre estate in Creston, dubbed Freedom Farms, is being offered up for $2.85 million by Home & Ranch Sotheby’s International Realty. It comprises a 7,800-square-foot main house, a barn, lake, hot springs and a pair of outbuildings that span 17,000 square feet. Prior to her and Carrie’s passing in 2016, Reynolds owned the property for the last three decades alongside her son, Todd Fisher. “The family compound was the site of hundreds of gatherings, sing-alongs and served as a tranquil retreat for Hollywood’s elite,” notes the listing.

    Nestled into a private valley dotted with live oak trees and less than three hours from LA or San Francisco, Reynolds purchased the parcel in the ‘80s and put up the eight-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bath main house in 1991. Inside, the Central Coast abode appears cozy, clad with custom tile, woodwork and high ceilings. The walls here tell all kinds of stories, enlivened by artifacts, family heirlooms and old photographs.

    A grand piano acts as the centerpiece of the living room, which son Todd tells SF Gate is the same one “that accompanied Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Dean Martin.” Elsewhere is a home theater where Reynolds and Carrie would screen their choice of over 5,000 movie titles, which are said to be stored behind the projector.
    Right outside are the barn and two sprawling warehouses. While the latter is mainly used for storage, it’s where you’ll also find a sound stage, recording studio and office spaces. There’s even a cement helicopter pad and loading docks.

    The lot includes two warehouses which are filled with memorabilia from Debbie Reynolds’s memorable career

    “There certainly is some memorabilia that I would be fine parting with…Certain furniture or certain artwork that I would be fine with leaving, that’s all negotiable. But there’s also things that don’t fit that bill. There’s some rare stuff on the walls, some really high-end photography, and some family things,” Todd tells SF Gate. “But, if the right person shows the right—let’s just say concern and care—and I felt that they were going to look after something, I wouldn’t have any problem because that’s what Debbie wanted. She wanted to share some of that with her fans. And our storage room is bursting at the seams.”
    Hear that? Now’s your chance to own way more than just a slice of Hollywood history.

    Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Just Listed Their Ultra-Private Beverly Hills Mansion for $19.6 Million

    A modern family just listed its luxe Beverly Hills home.

    Emmy-winning actress Sofia Vergara and her husband, actor Joe Manganiello, are saying farewell to their 11,369-square-foot home. The swanky residence, which is gated, features soaring ceilings, spiral staircases and ornate details that take inspiration from Renaissance-era Italian architecture. It also includes seven bedrooms, two of which are maid’s quarters, and 11 bathrooms that feature eye-catching wallpapers and tiles, all of them conceived by interior designer Jennifer Bevan.

    And while the home’s details dazzle, take a look at the whole and you’ll find it’s thoughtfully designed for serious entertaining. It has a new kitchen equipped with high-end appliances including an industrial stove, two dishwashers, two warming drawers and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. A marble island balances out the space, which also features exposed wooden beams. Off to the side of the kitchen is a quaint space for a quick family breakfast. Elsewhere, there are two other dining areas for accommodating guests on special occasions. The largest of the dining spaces features a coffered ceiling and French doors that lead onto the property’s gardens.

    Those details appear elsewhere in the generously sized home, which will also help you welcome guests with its wine cellar, a home theater that seats 25 people and a bar that’ll make space for a serious party.
    And as you venture outdoors, the home’s pool, spa and manicured grounds offer lots of room for family BBQs and other special events. Given that the 90210 zip code has no shortage of bold-faced names as residents, the garden is lined with tall, lush hedges for privacy. When you’re ready to leave the fortress, you’ll find many of Beverly Hills’s top-rated attractions from shopping on Rodeo Drive to delicious grass-fed Wagyu beef at Matū steakhouse nearby.
    “[The] couple is selling the home because they bought a bigger house in the same area that they gutted and have been working on for two years,” says listing agent Barry Peele of Sotheby’s International Realty—Beverly Hills Brokerage via email with Robb Report. “[The] best buyer is someone who likes an Italian-style house with some contemporary finishes.”

    If that happens to be you, the elegant listing can now be yours for just $19.6 million.

    Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s Stylish LA Estate Hits the Market for $18 Million

    After recently celebrating a milestone wedding anniversary, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are calling it quits on their Hancock Park home after 7 years.  

    The former Black Sabbath frontman and his wife, host of The Talk UK, have just listed their 11,565-square-foot estate for $18 million in one of LA’s most affluent areas, according to the Los Angeles Times. The trophy property was built in 1929 by A.K. Kellogg. The historic home features six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a movie theater and large swimming pool—sitting on over half an acre of land it’s the epitome of Old Hollywood glamour.  

    The swimming pool is covered in hand-laid mosaic tile 

    Tyler Hogan

    The Osbourne’s three-story dwelling is an ode to the rich history of the Hancock Park neighborhood, which dates back 100 years. The Spanish Colonial Revival-style mansion was meticulously restored to ensure that its architecture remained intact.   

    A wood-paneled library is one of the public rooms on the main level 

    Tyler Hogan

    From the inside, it boasts the most essential conveniences of modern life, with a velvet-lined screening room and grand chef’s kitchen, yet it remains stately in appearance. Arched doorways and wood-paneled built-ins speak to the age of the property while luxe furnishings and crystal chandeliers are in line with the family’s dramatic flair. A two-story foyer is among the manor’s most commanding elements.   

    A private screening room on the lower level is wrapped in red velvet 

    Tyler Hogan

    The one-time reality stars are said to have acquired the LA manor in 2015 from film producer Oren Koules. They paid $11.85 million for the home and if the current asking price is met, the Osbourne estate would be amongst the priciest properties ever sold in Hancock Park. Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy, set a record earlier this year when her three-story mansion, previously owned by Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos, was purchased for $21 million. All of this leaves us wondering which prominent figure will be next to inhabit the Osbourne’s abode.  
    The listing is held by Hilton & Hyland’s Jonah Wilson and Josh Greer. Check out more photos of the home below.

    The Co-Host of ‘Botched’ Just Listed His Luxe Bel Air Mansion for $30 Million

    This may be the house that Botched built, but there are certainly no mistakes here.

    Sited on a private 1.3-acre hillside lot, the immaculate Bel Air mansion is the brainchild of Dr. Paul Nassif and has benefited from his fastidious eye. The Lebanese-American plastic surgeon, best known for co-hosting the E! Network’s hit reality series, first listed the property last year while it was still under construction. Now that it’s complete, Nassif’s prized pad has hit the market once again.

    Penned by Bowery Design Group, the three-story abode spans just over 12,000 square feet and offers seven bedrooms and 14 baths. The interiors, brought to life by Faye Resnick, encourage indoor-outdoor living and there are alfresco entertaining areas on all three floors. That’s not the manse’s only drawcard, either.

    A look inside the sophisticated residence.

    As you pass through the front gates and into the private motor court, you’ll be welcomed by the home’s textured stone cladding, cascading water features and striking glass walls. Inside, the living quarters are centered around a large atrium and a water wall. The décor is suitably luxe, with oak flooring and Italian travertine bathrooms throughout.
    The generous layout comprises multiple lounge and dining areas, dual gourmet kitchens, an office, a 12-seat theater, a temperature-controlled wine room, and an indoor-outdoor gym with a steam room and sauna. Elsewhere, there are two guest suites on the second floor and four on the top floor. The primary suite, which is located on the third level, comes complete with a spa-style bathroom and dual closets. The staff quarters can be found on the lower level.

    Outside, meanwhile, a massive infinity pool with a Baja shelf and jacuzzi cascades down to a second 73-foot pool on the lower level. You’ll also find a large outdoor cooking area with a custom-made bar for entertaining. Last but not least, the home has two garages with enough room to park up to five of your rides.
    Located at 1035 Stradella, the $30 million estate even comes with the enviable 90077 zip code. You can contact listing agents Mauricio Umansky of The Agency and Tomer Friedman of Compass for more information.

    Bob Saget’s Former Brentwood Estate Just Hit the Market for $7.8 Million

    Bob Saget may be known for a certain full house in San Francisco, but it’s the Hollywood great’s LA estate that could now be yours.

    Located in the tony neighborhood of Brentwood, the 6,600-square-foot property was purchased by the late actor-comedian for $2.9 million in 2003, according to Adam Saget of Compass. Coincidentally, the listing agent is also the nephew of the Full House star.

    Originally built in the 1960s, the two-story home was treated to a full renovation in the late 2000s just before Saget moved in with his three daughters. The former America’s Funniest Home Videos host, who died in January at age 65, later lived there with his second wife Kelly Rizzo.

    Penned by Douglas Busch Design, the modern, architectural abode sports stone and hardwood flooring throughout, along with large windows that let in an abundance of natural light. The main level comprises a welcome foyer, a large living room with skylights, a dining room, a media room and a guest room. There is also an eat-in kitchen on this floor with a fireplace, breakfast counter, stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry.

    Large windows throughout let in plenty of natural light. 

    Jeff Ong/Postrain Productions

    The remaining guest rooms are located on the upper level, along with a sizable terrace and the primary suite. Fit for an A-lister, the suite includes high vaulted ceilings, another fireplace, a private patio, a large walk-in closet and a spa-like bathroom with a tub and steam shower. Adam Saget told Robb Report that “Bob was very into tech.” As a result, he installed smart house controls and automation all throughout the home.
    The manicured grounds, which span around a third of an acre, feature a motor court, three-car garage, a swimming pool and a separate guesthouse with a full bath. The latter could also be used as a studio, office or gym. For those who prize their privacy, the property is also protected by a gated security wall.
    “Personally, I’m going to miss our family gatherings and holiday celebrations we shared together in the home,” Saget told Robb Report in an email. “So many great stories, lots of laughs and memories to cherish for years to come.”
    Ready to live like Danny Tanner? The Brentwood pad will set you back $7.8 million. The sale also perfectly coincides with the premiere of A Tribute To Bob Saget, a celebration of Bob’s life in comedy with his friends and family, which drops on Netflix on June 10.

    Bob Hope’s $29 Million LA Home Has a Par-3 Golf Hole Designed by the Comedian Himself

    British-American comedian and actor Bob Hope, who passed away in 2003 at the age of 100, had an illustrious and dynamic career in entertainment. What many don’t know, however, is he also had an impressive real estate portfolio.

    One of his iconic homes at 10346 Moorpark in Toluca Lake is now being listed for $29 million. The home was built in 1939 for Hope and his wife, Dolores, who owned the home for the majority of their lives. Dolores held on to the home until her death in 2011 at the age of 102. The most recent owner and current seller is billionaire philanthropist and investor Ron Burkle, who bought the property for $15 million in 2018, and whose goal wasn’t to demolish the home, but to restore and preserve it. 

    The open-plan living area 

    Simon Berlyn

    He is selling it now, and many hope that the future buyer retains this legacy Los Angeles estate. It was originally designed in English Traditional style by architect Robert Finkelhor, but in the mid-1950s, the Hopes enlisted John Elgin Woolf, the father of Hollywood Regency Style, to update the home with a more contemporary style. Except for a few modernizations made for today’s buyer, like updated fixtures and high-end finishes, the home’s character remains. This includes Hope’s oak library and a one-hole golf course he designed himself.
    The property has seen some iconic moments, like when President Nixon landed Marine One on the back lawn so he could play a round of golf at the nearby Lakeside Golf Club.“Bob Hope to this day is the most iconic resident Toluca Lake has ever had,” says listing agent Kevin Dees of the Agency. “My favorite feature of the property is the legendary par-3 golf hole that Mr. Hope designed himself. The Toluca Lake property was the Hope family’s primary residence for decades. Countless dignitaries from around the world including United States presidents have visited the estate. I believe this property stands firmly at the top of Mr. Hope’s legacy.”

    The pool 

    Simon Berlyn

    The property spans just over five acres and features a main six-bedroom home (including two staff bedrooms), as well as a two-bedroom apartment. In total, there are 10 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms. The home was certainly ahead of its time, with walls of glass that overlook the lush grounds, an open-plan living area with a stone fireplace and private outdoor terraces ideal for entertaining or simply retreating from the craziness of life. 

    The estate also features a home theater, gym, steam room and infrared sauna, as well as Hope’s original office that was the core of Hope Enterprises’ operations for the duration of the couple’s time at the estate. It was from here that Hope ran his lucrative businesses and production work. To top is off, there’s also a four-car garage, motor court, extensive security and three electric entrances. 

    The tennis court and tennis pavilion 

    Simon Berlyn

    Burkle enlisted Art Luna’s landscape design prowess to transform the property’s beautiful grounds. Outdoor amenities include a saltwater pool, tennis court, barbecue kitchen and lounge space. There are few more iconic homes in which to enjoy a quieter side of the Los Angeles lifestyle—and few homes you could own in which an entertaining icon relaxed and raised his family.

    Burkle updated the home to include high-end finishes.
